headlines out of ukraine. secretary of state john kerry was in the capital of kiev today meeting with the new government there. he toured the site of last month's deadly protests and both he and president obama spoke out in support of ukraine's government, contradicting vladimir putin's remark that ukraine has no legitimate leadership now. president obama dismissed that claim, adding that russia's aggression in crimea is a violation of international law. >> i would also note, just, you know, the way that some of this has been reported, the suggestion somehow that the russian actions have been clever strategically. i actually think that this has not been a sign of strength but, rather, is a reflection that countries near russia have deep concerns and suspicions about this kind of meddling and if anything, it will push many countries further away from russia. >> now, secretary of state john kerry, who just left kiev, for talks in paris was even more forceful. he said all of putin's claims about crimea are false. >> not a single piece of credible evidence supports any one of these claims. no
